The Devil Is In The Details
September 6, 2016
Have you ever heard this phrase before?
It is my understanding it is often referred to in law
That everything can look fine on the surface but in the nitty gritty that’s where the trouble lies
It’s important to always pay attention to the small things they can often make the biggest difference
So I was reading a book about the ketogenic diet the other day and it had the origin of dieting and ketosis in it
One of the things it discussed was fasting and how it had come into practice and then fallen back out of practice again
So apparently what they used to do was make people fast for incredibly long periods of time
Like one of the studies made the subjects fast for a full YEAR
Yes you read that right
And your telling me you can’t skip breakfast
All they had for a full year was nutrients in the form of supplements and water
As you can imagine they decided to end this method because after a year they had lost incredible amounts of weight, but they determined that at least 50% was muscle mass
So not what you want.
At all actually
So it comes down to the devil in the details
That fasting is a very effective method when used in conjunction with the correct details
That you need to provide the right nutrients either side of the fast
The right types of food must be eaten
And getting the right exercise in conjunction with fasting is a must!
And this will all allow for the correct hormones to be released for better results
Once again the details
So let me give you a quick run down of those details
You want to have carbs the night before a fast to spike your insulin for better weight loss
When you finish your fast don’t eat carbs eat protein and vegetables only
And you want to be doing weight training not steady state cardio to really shred that extra fat.
So there you are…
The devil is gone from the details
And now you have some simple ways to crush it and make the most out of your fasting and fat burning.
Until next time
